Sex in Fable 2 fades to black. Sorry to all of the horny readers hoping to see their hero or heroine bumping uglies. As with the original Fable, once you woo a mate and buttons start popping, the game goes black. As Lionhead top dog Peter Molyneux explains, "It's you Americans -- there's something about nipples that [sets you off]."
Though Fable 2 won't show sex, it is a critical part of the game. As many an IGN editor can tell you, unprotected sex leads to children. And once you start having kids, you've got yourself a family. It's this family that creates emotional ties to the world of Albion. It's that family Molyneux plans to use to make you care about Fable 2 more deeply than you may have ever cared for anything in a game before.
